Coming off of a bye week, the Terps are back in action Friday in front of a sold-out crowd to face off against No. 12 Penn State — a matchup that has been long anticipated since the start of the season and beyond.
This game will be Maryland’s first sell out since 2015 when they lost to Michigan. The demand for student tickets was so high that the program announced they would add additional bleachers behind the student section to allow more students to attend the game.
The Terps look to rebound after losing their first game of the season on the road to Temple two weeks ago. Maryland comes into this game reeling a bit on offense after losing right guard Terrance Davis to a sprained MCL for the next few weeks and running back Jake Funk to a torn ACL that will keep him out for the rest of the season.
Maryland is going to have its work cut out for itself if it wants to knock off Penn State. The Nittany Lions are one of the best teams in the nation and the conference, and they’ve historically dominated the Terps. Penn State leads the overall series with a whopping 39 wins to two losses and one tie.
The game will be televised on Fox Sports 1, and if you have DISH Network, you might need an alternative place to watch the game.
